Having a beach or pool bag ready to go makes summer trips to the beach or pool quick and easy!

This post is sponsored by Yoplait and Acorn Influencer Network. 

I used to dread taking my kids to the pool. It seemed to take an hour just to get everyone dressed and all of our supplies packed and ready to go. Then it dawned on me one day that if I just kept the pool bag stocked and ready to go, we’d be able to get to the pool in minutes. It works like a charm and makes summer pool season a breeze.


Pool and Beach Bag Must Haves for Moms 


A Snack: First things first. No matter when we go to the pool, everyone gets hungry! Yoplait Mix-ins are the perfect snack to take along. They are small and easy to throw into a small cooler.  Plus they are cold so they are a great snack for a hot day of summer fun.

Yoplait Mix-ins come in a ton of fun flavors and are available at your local Walmart. The flavors include:

Yoplait Yogurt Mix-Ins Very Berry Crisp

-Yoplait Yogurt Mix-Ins Salted Caramel Pretzel

-Yoplait Yogurt Mix-Ins Mint Chocolate Delight

-Yoplait Yogurt Mix-Ins Key Lime Crunch

-Yoplait Yogurt Mix-Ins Coconut Chocolate Almond

-Yoplait Yogurt Mix-Ins Cherry Chocolate Almond

There is a flavor for everyone in the family!

Yoplait Mix-ins are pretty much mess free. You just bend the mix ins over and then stir into the yogurt. I put the Very Berry Crisp through a taste test and it was delicious. The granola was easy to mix in. I can’t wait to try the Salted Caramel Pretzel.

A small bag of necessities: My kids are the age where I no longer haul around a diaper bag of necessities. In fact, the bag or purse I use changes daily. I created a small bag of necessities, filled with things like tissues, lipgloss, chapstick, some change, feminine products and anything else I may need. The bag is small enough to tuck into our larger beach bag.

Towels: Keep the pool or beach towels in the pool bag so it’s ready to go at a minute’s notice.

Sunscreen: We keep the sunscreen right in the pool bag. That way we always have it and it’s ready to go.

A Water Bottle/Cup: Staying hydrated is vital when outside in the summer months! Everyone has their own water bottle – even mom! I have a cool water cup that stays cold all day long.

Pool Toys: Keep a small stash of pennies or other pool toys along with swim goggles for lots of fun play time. And when everyone gets hungry, pull out the Yoplait Mix-ins for a filling treat.

    I’m a flipping bag lady! I love having bags inside of bags inside of bags filled with everything I could possibly need to keep my family alive should the world basically come to an end. lol But generally I always make sure we have sunscreen, bug spray, water, snacks, lip balm, hats and a change of clothes in my beach bag!
